Mac doesn't recognize GoPro while it has a battery in it

[ New ]

Hi,

 

My Hero 8 GoPro wasn't being recognized in Image Capture nor Quik - I've read a bunch of these threads - and went through all the steps.... inlcuding the MTP option switch, rebooting the computer, unlocking the go pro screen  - and I remembered - every other time I connect the GoPro to the computer, it's when I DON'T have a battery in it (I did this time).  The battery was at 40% and the camera was plugged into a USB port.

 

So.... I unplugged the GoPro, turned it off, pulled out the battery, and re-connected it.  Now it shows up.  Any idea why?

 

Thanks
